“It’s against God’s nature to remember forgiven sins. Grace forgets. Period.”
– From God Came Near by Max Lucado
Accept it now, dear reader. No matter what you have done, you are still loved — and forgiven. Why don’t you “Go Through the Washing Machine” of forgiveness. You can get clean of the past, now!
Just imagine yourself going through a washing machine. Be washed by the soap of new thinking. Churn around in the twister with new action. You can come out bright and new today.
Living and Giving Readers, let’s know this: Once we live in the right, we are clear and clean, we are pure and forgiven.
Grace (and a washing machine) forget the past!
